Top UK medical research says-Opioids Out, Marijuana In.

UK MEDICAL RESEARCH Suggests that there is an extremely vast usage of marijuana as a substitute for subscribed opiates.

 

In a groundbreaking article released, one of the nation’s leading medical journals suggests that cannabis can be a helpful tool to combat UK’s Opioids addiction problem.
Since 1999, UK’S overdose deaths involving Opioids have quadrupled. Medical experts estimate that our nation’s abuse of Opioids cost over £22 billion in health costs each year.

According to The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA): With the current nationwide epidemic of Opioids abuse, dependence, and fatalities, clinicians are being asked by government agencies and professional societies to control their prescribing of narcotic medications for pain. government guidelines emphasize tapering, discontinuing, and limiting initiation of these drugs except in provision of end-of-life care. Reducing reliance on Opioids, however, is a massive task. According to one estimate, more than 220 000 Opioids prescriptions are dispensed each day in the UK. Unless the nation develops an increased tolerance to chronic pain, reduction in Opioids prescribing leaves a vacuum that will be filled with other therapies.

Dr. Esther K. Choo :
“There is a growing body of evidence to support the use of medical cannabis as an adjunct to or substitute for prescription opiates in the treatment of chronic pain. … Despite a lack of regulatory oversight by federal governments in North America, community-based medical cannabis dispensaries have proven successful at supplying patients with a safe source of cannabis within an environment conducive to healing, and may be reducing the problematic use of pharmaceutical opiates and other potentially harmful substances in their communities.”

 

Dr. Donald Abrams, chief of the Hematology-Oncology Division at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital: “If we could use cannabis, which is less addictive and harmful than opioids, to increase the effectiveness of pain treatment, I think it can make a difference during this epidemic of opioid abuse. We are hampered by the fact that it is still difficult to get funding for studies on cannabis as a therapeutic.”

That is true. Marijuana is less dangerous than opiates. If Marijuana is used correctly and not abused, it can really do a look of helps for those who need for effective paint treatment. There’s a lot of benefits to Marijuana in the medical field.

WE are all in unison in saying Marijuana has its benefits but the dangers outweigh it. I think regulated use for medicine is okay but never beyond that.

This is quite fasinating, marijuana for medical purses? Well I am not in the medical field so if the medical experts says it is safer to make use of marijuana than it is opioid, than they should go ahead. I do hope they get funding though, so a comprehensive research can be carried out.

Many countries have already started using Marijuana for medicinal purposes. Legalizing it is good. Just have to make sure people use it in moderation.

I hope all countries agree about the health benefits of Marijuana. Sadly, some nations just aren’t open about it.

Most of the drugs that we think are dangerous are actually the most helpful to humans if used in the right quantities. I definitely know that marijuana is one of them as well.

It is very difficult to control these drugs. That is why we banned these substances in the first place. Who is going to decide what is right and wrong for you? And the correct dosage too.

That’s a very valid point, eldest, but how do we even figure out if we don’t even try? I’m pretty sure that the government will come up with something to regulate these things moving forward. That’s their job! Per the article “Despite a lack of regulatory oversight by federal governments in North America, community-based medical cannabis dispensaries have proven successful at supplying patients with a safe source of cannabis within an environment conducive to healing, and may be reducing the problematic use of pharmaceutical opiates and other potentially harmful substances in their communities.” – this goes to show that it… Read more »

Marijuana has been under research in the past years. Almost all say Marijuana is not bad. Actually they say it has medicinal advantages.

I agree that Marijuana is an alternative to cub Opiods. Large sums of funds are used to help victims of Opiods abuse. Its a good move to introduce marijuana.

I assume Opiods is from Opium. I do not know which is more dangerous but it has to be regulated or do not use it at all.

They are both Illegal for a reason. For me marijuana or opium does not matter. Avoid it if you can and only as a last option.

I am not aware of any Opium benefits but MJ yes. Still I would not want to mess with those.

I believe that this is a groundbreaking discovery. I hope they legalize the use of marijuana for the addicts.

Some really say that Marijuana has less harmful effects because it comes from the ground and therefore, natural. I hope there would be more research regarding this and one should be always careful because it is very addictive.

Allowing Marijuana even for Medicinal purposes is a huge gamble. It is very hard to control and many will definitely abuse its use.

This is encouraging, but it’s only really hopeful if one addiction isn’t simply replaced with another. The question has to be whether or not it can be medically administered and/or refined to not have the addictive properties, and if it can be administered in such a way, such as an edible format, so that non-users need not also be exposed to otherwise resulting pollution.

I have read a lot of articles about the benefits of medical marijuana. I don’t like it being smoked though.

You can talk the perks all you want but the fact that it is in vapor form is iffy. The way I see it, it is hard not to abuse these.

LAST RESORT!!! that is how this should be treated and not just handed out like candy. Which I think the right way because it is odd for encouragement of DRUG use.
